    No doubt Wolves are better when hes in though, I can see that.

    Don't see the point of Irving vs. Rubio. Thats like comparing Lebron and Durant at SF.
    Rubio has always had a great +/-. He does start btw, and even when he came off the bench, its not like he was playing with a good bench on his end.

    Yes, I don't care about the Rubio/Irving comparisons. Both teams got their legit starting PG for the next 10 years.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    the look that hot chick in your sig is giving, is the exact same look I give every time I read one of your posts.

    Rubio last night.

    9 points
    8 assists (3 turnovers)
    7 rebounds
    6 steals
    1-8 shooting

    His shooting was bad (including 3 missed layups) but as long as he's shooting 6-8 times a game I'm less concerned with how many of his shots fall and more concerned with his assist to turnover ratio, steals, and rebounds. This is a very typical line for Rubio. It's just a matter of time until tripple doubles come....

    I'm definitely not saying that I think he isn't a good player, but a lot of guys are already calling him an All-Star, and that, in my opinion, is a bit to much. And I agree, I excepted a lot more of Kemba Walker, he was so good in college.

    Rubio's shooting has come back to earth a bit.

    But this kid is a BALLER. Imagine when he starts to really work on his game.

    I only tuned in for the 4th Q last night, but man Rubio really impressed me. Obviously Chauncey has lost a step, but Rubio was getting by him every time down the court. He plays the passing lanes exceptionally well, has solid defensive positioning, good timing, instincts, and his passing ability is obvious. Very impressed by this kid. The shot will come around.

    Are people serious? He had one bad game yesterday. They were able to hang close and Rubio finally made some good plays at the end, but all and all it was one of his worst games. No objectivity on here.

    I think only 3 people have commented on his game last night, and I made it pretty clear that I only tuned in for the 4th. Pretty obvious that he had a poor game prior to that (at least shooting-wise). TBH, I'm most impressed by his feel for the game and anticipation/positioning on D.
